Here’s a quick and easy dinner that is perfect to whip up during busy weeknights: Orange Teriyaki Pork Stir Fry.
Things are getting really crazy lately. And by crazy, I mean the holidays are looming upon us and will be here before we know it!
When the holidays arrive, we get overloaded with giant to-do lists and errands… so easy dinner ideas are needed and much appreciated too! This is one of those easy dinner recipes that will help you to feel a little less crazy.
I chose to use Smithfield Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Pork Tenderloin for this recipe. I love using the Smithfield already marinated pork products because they take a lot of the work out of making dinner.
Since the pork is already marinated, you don’t have to spend extra time marinating it yourself… and the roasted meat yields a wonderful flavor for your meal! The teriyaki is perfect for this recipe because it gives the pork the perfect base flavor for the stir-fry.
Smithfield is currently hosting the Real Flavor, Real Fast contest– challenging you to see what you can do with Marinated Fresh Pork to create a 30-minute meal. To submit your original tip for a chance to win a trip to wine country, go to www.SmithfieldRealFlavorRealFast.com.
Before you begin your stir-frying, you’re going to put some rice on the stove. By the time you’re done with the stir-fry, the rice will be finished and you’ll be ready to put everything together.
The pork is quickly fried in a hot skillet. Lots and lots of veggies are added in after the pork is almost cooked through.
The veggies and pork and cooked with a little bit of the quickie-homemade, easy orange-teriyaki sauce that you’re going to whip up. That just gives the dish a sauce that will be nice to spoon over the hot rice.
To put the bowls together, combine hot rice, a few spoonfuls of the pork and veggies with sauce drizzled on top, and a scoop of mandarin oranges. That’s it- a super easy dinner!
This is the perfect, low-stress dinner for the busy weeknights you’re bound to have in the weeks ahead. Try it, and let me know what you think!
